Anna doesn't use much you can't find yourself the same way she does , other than actually travelling. The materials can be found the same way I find them - go look. Look at thrift stores , garage sales , dollar , craft and fabric stores , antique stores and online. Look for images in the Library of Congress , which is a nightmare of navigating but doable (good maps to download) or get great clipart on ebay. If you're dedicated , and I say this with a smile , you already know that! You can actually google "found objects" and come up with stores that will sell them to you (who knew? I didn't , at least not until just recently!).
Oh , just buy it - it's a fun one.
My problem was that, with the exception of the intro where the reader is told to 'go to flea markets - and the one in Paris is great' none of the projects had any sourcing guidelines at all.
I also found the instructions were quite bland - meaning they were numbered and typed without any step-by-step photographs - only pictures of the completed projects. Even the descriptions often left you wanting a little more.
Overall - great book as a jumping off point for your imagination; I just wished she shared more techniques rather than a bevy of finished projects.
If you want a look at this book, get it at the library or flip through it at the book store. It's not worth buying at full price, however.
I recommend Pretty Little Things by Sally Jean Alexander instead, and also browsing artful blogging blogs and tutorials! Those are better than this book!
